Commission targeting dog owners
The Forestry Commission is running a special event for dog owners in Devon in a bid to encourage them to use its land more sensitively.

The Commission is working together with the Kennel Club after it was estimated that around 30% of visitors to the countryside bring a dog with them.

The event, to be held at Holden Forest, near Exeter, will include dog agility, obedience and fly ball demonstrations.

There will also be a pooch parade featuring an award for "waggiest tail".
